1  Fabric map in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by vrlowe on: June 28, 2016 12:25:46 PM
I actually made this a few years ago, right after hubby and I finished hiking the Colorado Trail. I wanted something to commemorate the amazing 6 week long backpacking trip. You can get a big poster map from the Colorado Trail Foundation, but I didn't really want to pay for that. To try to get you to buy said poster, they send a smaller, regular paper version. I happened to have some muslin hanging around from my last attempt quilting, so I took a piece of it, cut it to the size I wanted, and started tracing with fabric markers. I love, love, love it, though I haven't quite figured out how I want to display it yet, still. But I thought I'd share.  Grin

2  Embroidered ring in Needlework: Completed Projects by vrlowe on: June 28, 2016 11:08:27 AM
I'm not entirely sure where to put this, but I figured this is good enough.
So I've been browsing and oohing and saying over other's projects, especially those spoon rings. Alas, I haven't been able to find silver spoons for a price I'm willing to pay, and I'm not skilled at doing that sort of thing anyway. so I figured I'd make myself a ring with things I knew I could do.
 I knitted a little ring for my finger with bamboo thread and elastic thread held together. Then embroidered it with some newly-learned stitches to make a vine and flower. I was aiming for something like a rose, but I think it looks more like a poinsettia, which is fine, especially considering my newbie embroidery skills.

3  First ATCs in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by vrlowe on: September 20, 2012 01:24:44 PM
So, I thought I'd share my first attemts at Artist Trading Cards, but I haven't posted enough to be able to do pics yet. Meanwhile, I'll pose a question: I get that you're supposed to trade them with other people, but what do I do if I like them too well to want to trade?
I didn't realize just how fun these things are until I got a chance to make a couple at the Denver County Fair.

Update: I can now include pics! - The bottom pic is supposed to have the red ribbon at the bottom, not be sideways

4  Flower Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by vrlowe on: December 20, 2011 09:14:30 AM
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has thought of this, but I was very happy when it came to me, and they are very pretty.
Considering that I am relatively new to the whole crafting scene, this was uber-easy to do:
Simply cut off small silk flowers close to the head, put hot glue generously around the bottom point of the flower and glue to blank studs.

Since I just figured out how to post, I don't really know how to link photos to this post. I think I managed to upload a photo, but I dunno if its connected to this post at all. Hmmm...  Huh I'll figure this out eventually.
